Activism Screener Tool

Overview Of The Activism Screener

In collaboration with colleagues across a number of other FTI practices, FTI Consulting’s Activism and M&A Solutions team has built a proprietary algorithm designed to screen quarterly for public companies – and industries – that are vulnerable to shareholder and corporate activism.

The Activism Screener is comprised of over 3,800 companies incorporated in the U.S. and Canada with market capitalizations of at least $100 million.

The Activism Screener is updated quarterly to assess companies across all sectors and industries based on four categories – Governance, Total Shareholder Return, Balance Sheet Strength and Operating Performance – each of which is equally weighted.
